Leveling the playing field is not just about fairness: It’s good for business
February 5, 2012 § Leave a comment
Capitalism may be going through a full-blown existential crisis, but in the U.S., “socialism” remains a dirty word, and few politicians, policy makers, or mainstream economists seem ready to question capitalism’s fundamental assumptions. Those who are brave enough to advocate for policies that can be described as socialist usually do so on the grounds of fairness and justice for the working masses. Bill Maher’s analysis of the NFL’s business model offers a new line of argument: leveling the playing field is not only morally right – it is also good for business.
